    Join our supporters by lending your brand's name and social reach to this important project. The more support we have from the industry, the greater the result we can collectively achieve.

  2. 2

    We investigate and work on specific targets.

    The Music Mission will do work behind-the-scenes, mapping and investigating underlying key dependancies that these sites have.

  3. 3

    Stop your money going to pirates!

    Supporters owning the right content will be sent infringment notices to forward to payment gateways and server companies. This will shut down their ability to keep taking your money.

  4. 4

    Cash is injected back into the industry.

    With fewer 'pay-for-access' sites, search results won't link to non-genuine sites ahead of licensed ones, turning users to buy from legitimate stores, resulting in more traffic and music discovery.
